Inspiring Hispanic Stories

Tucson always takes pride in its Hispanic heritage. Both during Hispanic Heritage Month and throughout the year, these stories can inspire both visitors and locals and give a glimpse into the culture of Tucson.

A local baker who went from crafting bread in his garage to accepting the most prestigious award in the culinary industry, two female chefs that have helped put Tucson on the map as a City of Gastronomy, as well as artists, scientists, and community leaders – these are just a handful of the people who show that Hispanic heritage is more than just part of our history, it's what makes Tucson the place it is today.
